Bridgeport is Still Doing Well For Anglers Trolling

Kens Sporting Goods Staff

Report Date:

Bridgeport is still doing well for anglers trolling or casting lures from the shore as well as bait fishing from the shore or over near Rainbow Point. Lots of browns being caught in the 2 to 5 pound range as well as some good rainbows up to nearly 7 pounds. Trollers have been using night crawlers, Rapalas, Speedy Shiners and Thomas Bouyants, bait anglers have been using garlic power bait, inflated crawlers and pinched crawlers.

Here’s an update to the Bridgeport Reservoir report I received via email this morning: Hey

How about some truth in your advertising ---- > I just spent the last week pounding The reservoir with most of what you mentioned for 4 fish in 6 days... lots of wind... shallow, dirty water, and VERY poor launching conditions... Someone needs to make some adjustments to the crappy launching areas (like scrape some rocks out of the ramp area) I know it’s all about marketing to get some people up there to spend their $$$’s , but comon man how about some honest reports.  I spoke with several locals and a guide, everyone seems to be scratching out 1 or 2 fish per day...
